The Faculty Workload and Rewards Project is an NSF ADVANCE funded, collaborative, action research project. Academic department teams study workload, consider and then adopt policies and practices to ensure equity in how teaching and service is taken up, assigned, and rewarded.This project builds from research and interdisciplinary scholarship and provides an evidence-based structure for learning how equity issues arise, using data to inform new organizational policies and practices, developing consensus around department priorities, and evaluating progress toward department workload objectives.
In the first phase of the project (2015-2018) we worked with 30 academic departments in NC, MD and MA (half as control departments, half participating in our interventions). We currently have a call out for academic departments to join us for Phase II, wherein we will work with another 21 departments from July, 2018 to April, 2019. On this website you will find resources and information we can share about what we have learned so far.
